Pinkeye, also called conjunctivitis, is common in children. Pinkeye in kids is usually caused by viruses, bacteria, allergies or an irritant in the eye. Symptoms of pinkeye include a red eye, pain, itching, feeling like something is stuck in the eye, or goopy discharge from the eye. Treatment depends on the cause but may include cleansing or a prescription for eye drops.
At Brave Care, we have special tools to evaluate for scratches in the eye. We can also help determine if your child might benefit from antibiotic drops in the eye or other treatment. Call, schedule online, or walk in. We're here to help.
